  • More than 100 million people are estimated to suffer from OSA worldwide. Unfortunately, many of these patients with sleep apnea have difficulty adhering to their therapy because of the discomfort associated with CPAP masks. For those who need an over-the-nose mask, the front facial tube is often cited as the main reason why patients chose to forgo sleep apnea treatment. The DreamWisp mask solves this problem by bringing the benefit of Philips DreamWear’s unique top-of-the-head tube design to users who benefit from the seal of an over-the-nose cushion, yet continue to deal with the challenges of frontal tubing.
